[movies]Striking a Solar Balance - NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Planet Earth is an oasis of life, but without the Sun, our home planet would be a drastically different, inhospitable place. The Sun's electromagnetic energy makes life on Earth possible; solar power also generates clouds, cleans our water, and drives ocean currents, thunderstorms, and hurricanes. For three decades, NASA scientists have studied the unique relationship between the Sun and the Earth, and they are particularly interested in the role of the Sun in Earth's energy balance...

[movies]Earth's Energy Budget Animations: Global View and Budget Breakout - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center
Total solar irradiance (TSI) is the dominant driver of the Earth's climate. The global temperature of the Earth is almost completely determined by the balance between the intensity of the incident solar radiation and the response of the Earth's atmosphere via absorption, reflection, and re-radiation. Roughly 30 percent of the TSI that strikes the Earth is reflected back into space by clouds, atmospheric aerosols, snow, ice, desert sand, rooftops, and even ocean surf...

[movies]Glory's Total Irradiance Monitor (TIM) - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center
The Total Irradiance Monitor (TIM) is an electrical substitution radiometer (ESR) that measures total solar irradiance (TSI) with extreme accuracy and precision. It has four identical radiometers to provide redundancy and to detect changes in the instrument performance due to exposure to solar radiation. As illustrated by this animation, the TIM is mounted on a two-axis, gimbaled platform that tracks the Sun independent of spacecraft orientation...
